Emerging Talents

In a collective exhibition which brings together eight emerging designers, this showcase examines how joy influences the creative process. Joy serves as a catalyst for change, providing hope and optimism, particularly through approaches that involve repurposing materials, resilience, poetic narratives, and products that encourage playful interaction. The showcase explores various aspects, including the modern application of traditional crafts like weaving, the connection between technology and sustainability, or the rethinking of consumption habits. This exhibition shows that change can be driven through joy by focusing on positive, thought-provoking, and tangible solutions.
